Complete List of Mini Panniers and Small Panniers for Bikepacking

Panniers for bikepacking? Forget the enormous bags designed for fully loaded road touring. Nowadays, there’s a wide selection of hookless mini panniers and sturdy small panniers that are well-suited for off-road touring and bikepacking. These panniers are especially useful for mid-winter outings, remote trips that require a week or more of food, or for smaller riders who lack adequate clearance for a seat pack. Here’s our complete list of panniers for bikepacking, mini panniers, and svelte micro options…

Updated July 2024

In bikepacking utopia, we all ride beautiful singletrack on minimal soft bag setups, perfectly packed with the latest in ultralight gear. In the real world, however, many of us aren’t always enjoying trail riding and our gear can often be bulky. Or sometimes we just need a little extra capacity. Perhaps it’s an extended tour on dirt roads and we’re expecting mixed weather. Or it’s an expedition-style journey with two or three weeks between resupply points. Winter riding? Maybe a -20° sleeping bag takes up all the space on our handlebars. Tykepacking? We know what it’s like to have kids and need to carry extra gear. And then there are shorter riders, whose setups often impose limited tire clearance for a seatpack, as well as the constraints of a small capacity framebag.

Why Use Panniers for Bikepacking

Despite their extra bulk and weight, hybrid setups make sense when our requirements are a little out of the ordinary. A number of manufacturers have noticed this need, and there’s a growing range of small, minimal panniers that cater to this overflow without reverting all the way back to a traditional touring setup.

Broadly speaking, these bags are smaller in capacity than conventional panniers. They’re also lighter and often rattle-free, which makes them more suited to off-road riding. Their profiles are slimmer too, which means pushing a bike is less awkward, and singletrack riding is often more enjoyable. In some cases, they’re so minimal that they can be cinched back or rolled right down when not in use, barely taking up any space at all.

All this said, panniers aimed at bikepacking tend to sacrifice everyday practicality in the pursuit of performance. In many cases, this means that they’re not as easy to pull on and off as a traditional pannier. Generally they’re designed to be left on the bike during a tour, rather than removed each and every day. Soft bag models may also need a liner for complete waterproofing. And their capacity is capped, because at heart, mini panniers still encourage us to pack light, unencumbered by excess gear. For this reason, all the panniers in this selection have a maximum of 30L in combined capacity.

As a bonus, packing a pannier is inherently easier and quicker than the more meticulous approach that’s required with most modern bikepacking bags. We’d suggest organising your heaviest gear at the bottom of the pannier when you can, to minimize the effect of panniers on your bicycle’s handling off road. If you’re in that twilight zone of “panniers too big, bare bike too small,” try our cargo cage and fork mount bag Index.

Front Panniers on the Back

Running front panniers on a rear rack is a time-honoured way of reducing the amount of gear you carry. By their nature, front panniers are smaller and lighter than rear panniers, so you’re less likely to overpack and have the rear of the bike wag when riding. There’s a range of models on the market, and whilst they’re not designed specifically for bikepacking, almost any front pannier will do the trick, depending on your demands. By comparison, Micro Panniers tend to have a slimmer profile for both ‘technical’ riding and to make the bike easier to push on a hike-a-bike. Higher/shorter panniers also help avoid snagging brush and rocks in tight singletrack.

Straps vs. Hooks

There are many to attach panniers to racks. Commuters and traditional tourers favour designs that unclip easily for daily removal. These, however, can be noisy and sometimes prone to failure when used off-road. Other designs have simple hooks and bungee cords to prevent bags from jettisoning off. Panniers designed specifically for bikepacking often use velcro straps; they’re not as quick to remove, but they’re lighter, quieter, and less likely to fail. It’s also possible to mix and match, as some manufacturers do.

Rack compatibility

You’ll need to source a rack to run with your panniers. A typical checklist includes making sure there’s enough clearance for the width of your tires and height of your wheels, that the diameter of the tubing and the rack’s overall shape work with your pannier attachment system, and that the rack is designed for the weight you carry and is hardy enough for off-road use. Lastly, you don’t need anything that’s too overbuilt, or you’ll find that your hardware weighs more than its contents. A couple of stout but minimal racks include Tubus’ Vega series and the Tumbleweed Bikes T-Rack.

    Altura Vortex Ultralite Panniers

    • Type: Mini Panniers
    • Attachment: Strap and Buckle
    • Volume (each): 15L
    • Fabric: 210D Nylon TPU

    These 15-liter panniers are built with light and fast adventure in mind. Made with proprietary Altura Shield Technology, welded seam construction, and a roll-top closure, these panniers keep your critical items dry. The mounting system on panniers always seems to be the weak point, but the strap system used on these bags is bombproof. Ordinarily, panniers bump and bobble around, but not these. The strap system snugs up tightly and keeps the pannier from bouncing. Coming in at only .5 kg a pair, they’re quite light. They seem like they’d handle moderate abuse but we’d hesitate in dragging them through thick brambles, thistles, or thorns like one could with Cordura or X-Pac.

    Arkel Dry-Lite Panniers

    Arkel Dry-Lite Panniers

    • Type: Mini Panniers
    • ATTACHMENT: Velcro Straps
    • VOLUME (EACH): 14L
    • FABRIC: 400D Nylon TPU

    Arkel is best known for its traditional touring panniers and accessories. However, in the last few years, they have been expanding their already impressive product line to include lightweight and bikepacking-friendly saddlebags, handlebar bags, and panniers. The Arkel Dry-Lites are fully waterproof roll-top panniers that use a unique velcro attachment system that should make them compatible with most rear racks. The bags are made of 400-denier ripstop nylon, provide up to 28 litres of storage between two bags, and are easily one of the lightest pannier sets out there.

    Although the velcro attachment system looked a bit messy at first, with a little practice it became one of the bag’s most valuable features. The Dry-Lites will fit nearly every rack out there. The velcro system keeps the weight down, and there is little chance of failure, which can’t be said for standard rack attachment systems seen on other panniers. There is a standard shock cord and hook point on each bag that hooks onto the lower section of the rack to keep the Dry-Lites in place, and ultralight horizontal stays to hold the panniers away from the rear wheels. In practice, the lightweight materials mean stuffing gear within the bags is easy and quick and would be useful for storing bulky items like sleeping bags, tents, or winter layers during extended bikepacking trips. However, the unique velcro straps do mean removing and reattaching the panniers can be slow, so taking extra care to plan what gear lives inside the Dry-Lites is a must. Dimensions per bag: 14.5” X 11” X 5.5” (37cm X 28cm X 14cm).

    Bedrock Bags Hermosa UL Panniers

    Bedrock Bags Hermosa UL Panniers

    • Type: Small Panniers
    • Attachment: Velcro straps, webbing, and buckles
    • Volume (each): 13
    • Fabric: X-Pac and ballistic nylon with internal framesheet

    Bedrock’s Hermosa UL Panniers scooped up one of our 2018 “Top Frills” bikepacking awards for two reasons: they’re both lovely and extremely expensive. Yes, $300 is an awful lot of cash for a set of small panniers. But price aside (and Bedrock insist that a part of this pricing is due to the fair US wages they pay their employees), we love everything about them. They’re very light, fit securely, are quiet in use, and the sizing is just right for gear overflow (without overpacking). Typical to Bedrock, the build quality is excellent – after months of hard use, they’re still in perfect condition.

    Officially, the Hermosas are designed for Salsa and Surly racks, but I mounted mine to a more minimal Tubus Vega without any issues. And, although they’re not made with front-loading in mind, I’ve also fitted them to a Surly 8 Pack front rack, running the lower strap beneath a fork-mounted water bottle cage. The spacing for the velcro straps isn’t perfect, but it works. Again, whilst the Hermosas are not designed to be used with low riders, they mount up nicely to a set of Tubus Duos. Worth noting though – for those who plan to run them this way – is that that there are no velcro strap “tidies” and the lower attachment straps dangles down, so you’ll just have to tuck them in.

    Fitting them is a relatively slow affair compared to more commuter-orientated panniers, so I found it easier just to leave them on my bike, with the contents easily removed when stored in waterproof liners. Not that these liners are really needed; although the Hermosas don’t claim to be 100% waterproof, they’re certainly up to keeping contents dry during most downpours. As for the fitting process, it involves threading two velcro straps through loops, then running the lower corner strap around the rack. Nothing too complicated, just not as quick as plastic clasps.

    In terms of rack compatibility, the upper straps have an outside-to-outside lateral measurement is 6.5″, an inside-to-inside lateral measurement of 3.5″, and they are 1.5″ wide. Minimum height from any lower rail of rack to upper rail of rack is 12″ and maximum height from any lower rail of rack to upper rail of rack is 15″. They’re available in an assortment of sizes and quoted dimensions are 11″ wide, 4″ deep, 12-18″ tall.

    Note too that cosmetic seconds are sometimes available on the site for $225.

    • Volume (each): 9L
    • Fabric: EcoPak ULTRA 200

    According to MLD, the Poco Panniers were designed to be as tough and simple as possible while still being super functional. They use a roll-top closure, two lengths of Hypalon daisy chain along the top and bottom for lashing to your favourite rack, and are finished using a seam sealing method that creates a waterproof design with stronger seams.

    • Attachment: Rack Hooks
    • Volume (Each): 14L
    • Fabric: X-Pac

    The North St. Micro Pannier is made in Portland using as many US-sourced components as possible. They fit perfectly with the type of panniers we like to use for bikepacking, designed around a waterproof VX21 X-Pac body and simple roll-top closure. With a capacity of 14L per pannier, they aren’t huge, which is great. The Adventure Micro Panniers were updated in 2024 with a revised attachment system that looks better suited for off-road riding. They now use large velcro straps up top and a lower compression strap that loops through the rack for even more stability. Read all about the latest design here.

    Old Man Mountain Ponderosa Panniers

    Old Man Mountain Ponderosa Panniers

    • Type: Small Panniers
    • Attachment: Velcro Straps / Buckles
    • Volume (each): 13L
    • Fabric: TPU

    The Old Man Mountain Ponderosa Panniers each feature 13 liters of storage with a roll-top design constructed from welded TPU-coated nylon. The panniers secure to the rack with two large velcro straps at the top and use the lower compression strap to loop through tubing at the lower portion of the rack. All of the compression straps are replaceable, which is a nice touch. The Ponderosa only comes in black and has minimal branding with an exposed velcro loop, so you can customize it with patches of your choice to add a little flair.

    One thing that sets the Ponderosa Panniers apart is that they each have two HDPE plastic stiffener sheets inside. There’s one in the back that sits against the rack for stability, plus a removable front sheet that allows the bag to compress evenly for a slimmer profile with smaller loads. The two side compression straps are designed to work with these sheets for lateral compression.

They have a large main pocket with a flap-style opening and side release buckle closure, external elastic “pockets” for lashing extra gear to. It has an easily replaceable plastic stiffener, the inverted Y-strap lifts the bag’s weight from the bottom and uses a hardwood dowel and webbing strap upper attachment for a versatile and adjustable setup.

    Revelate Nano Panniers

    • Type: Mini Panniers
    • Attachment: Velcro Straps / Voile Strap
    • Volume (Both): 7-11L
    • Fabric: Ultra PE 200D

    The new Revelate Designs Nano Panniers are incredibly lightweight. At just 255 grams per pannier, they are some of the lightest panniers out there, and they’re by far the most minimal I’ve used. They are based around a single main compartment that’s accessed via a roll-top closure and side-release buckle. The body of the pannier, including the front, base, and backside, is constructed from a lightweight Ultra PE fabric from Challenge Sailcloth.

    On the back of the pannier, positioned on either side of a strip of Rhinotec fabric, there are two velcro straps and aluminum loops that strap directly to the top of your rack. The lower attachment point is a simple Voile Nano Strap attached to a small webbing loop. There are two small metal loops for adjusting its position and an additional rubber keeper for gathering up the tail of the Voile strap.

    The front of the bag is where things really get interesting. The pannier is based around a four-point compression system that’s designed to compress its contents and the bag itself tight against the rack. In the middle is a floating plastic-coated fiberglass strut with four adjustable webbing straps extending from each side and wrapping around the pannier. The side straps extend to plastic ladder lock buckles that are positioned directly beside the interior strut. The bottom strap runs through a ladder lock buckle and sewn in directly to the base of the bag, looping up under the load. The top strap has a side release buckle and loops up and over the roll-top closure, compressing the top of the bag downward. Because all straps are independently adjustable, the strut can be positioned differently depending on how full the bags are, and any unnecessary bunching is kept at bay with all straps cinched down.

    The San Util Design Mini Panniers are a scaled-down version of the lightweight panniers. They offer up 4.5L (rolled) or up to 7L (overstuffed) of storage, use the same simple Voile strap attachment system as their larger sibling, and are priced individually. Like their other gear, the Mini Panniers are available as a custom order in your choice of colors and fabrics.

    The San Util Designs Lightweight Panniers are designed to be simple, durable, lightweight, and customizeable. They utilize a horizontal daisy chain that uses 2 Voile Straps to attach the bag to almost any rack. The vertial daisy chain helps to hold the bag in place over rough terrain. The bags are overstuffable to roughly 12L and can be carried off the bike with a shoulder strap.

    The Lightweight Panniers took a place in Lucas’ 2023 Editor’s Dozen roundup because of their versatile shape, combined 15L capacity, and how they don’t budge or bounce over rough terrain. “As with everything I’ve seen and tried from San Util Design, the panniers are exceptionally well made right down the road in Winter Park, Colorado, and they’re available in a range of colors and fabrics you can mix and match using their online custom bag designer.”

    • Attachment: Velcro Straps
    • Volume (each): 8L
    • Fabric: Cordura

    Handmade to order in New Zealand, the Stealth Mountain Panniers are smaller than traditional panniers and designed to handle the rigors of mountain biking and bikepacking. The Mountain Panniers attach to most racks using a rattle-free velcro mounting system, with an additional lower cam lock buckle to keep things in place. They are sold as a pair, providing up to 16 liters of storage for when some extra packing space is needed.

    • Stealth Mountain Panniers
    • Stealth Mountain Panniers

    Simple, compact, and tough were the first words that came to mind when I got the Stealth Mountain Panniers. The bags are made from a single stitched layer of 500d Cordura with a hard plastic sheet backing on the inside/back held in place with two integrated Cordura sleeves. The back panel and bottom are made from 1000d and they have two laser-cut Cordura attachment panels stitched into the back. Each pannier is about 3″ (7.6cm) deep at the seam and the 10″ wide by x 8″ high (25 x 20cm) plastic stiffener gives the bag its shape and size. That said, the long roll-top provides the bag a generous 18.5″ (47cm) overall height for expandability. The roll-top is held in place with a single 1.5″ (4cm) webbing strap and there are two velcro straps on the back that attach to the rack tubing with an additional moveable strap on the bottom to secure at the foot of the rack.

    Aside from the minimal velcro straps, one thing that sets the Stealth Mountain Panniers apart is the five-position strap at the bottom. They are one of only a couple of panniers that can be used with the Tumbleweed T-Rack, which doesn’t have a horizontal lower tube for panniers. I was able to wrap the cord around the bottom of the vertical tube that makes the ascender in the “T” and it worked like a charm. I’ve only used these bags a couple of times so far, but I really like them. They can store all kinds of random bike-glamping accessories for a posh overnighter, and they’d be great for a longer tour where lots of food and extra supplies are necessary. They aren’t too terribly heavy, either. This pair weighs about 688 grams in total. My only concern would be the durability of the velcro rail straps over time when used with heavier items, but they seem pretty reliable so far.

    • Type: Small Panniers
    • Attachment: Metal clip and Hook (Arkel Cam-Lock Hardware upgrade available)
    • Volume (each): 10
    • Fabric: X-pac

    We gave the Hinterlands a thorough test back in 2016 and came to the conclusion whilst these panniers aren’t as light as some, they’re extremely well built and far more secure than we were expecting. Swift’s Jr. Ranger Panniers have certainly stood up well to the various rigours of the road, both on and off the bike. In terms of pricing, they’re certainly not cheap – but over the months, I’ve found myself increasingly won over by their practicality, build quality, and handmade good looks.

    Although there’s a definite appeal to a fully waterproof setup, there are also advantages to be had in materials that can be easily repaired, wherever you find yourself in the world. By a similar token, the simple hook and cord system comes bereft of the need to carry spare parts and proved to have an exceptionally strong grip on the rails in all conditions. Given the backcountry terrain many of us favour, we’d like to have seen a rear pocket with a more secure closure. But apart from that, we’ve been extremely happy with how the Juniors have fared. With their external zip pocket, carrying handle, rear pocket, and easy on-and-off attachment, they’re a good option for commuting, too.

    Dimensions are 25.5 × 33 × 10cm (10 × 13 × 4″). Swift claims a 20L capacity for the set, but having loaded them up, we think it’s a good deal more (at least if you don’t roll them down a few times). And, they’ve proved largely water-resistant as well. Note that the non-Hinterland edition is heavier and cheaper. Mounting hook spacing is 7″ outside to outside.

    Swift now allows customers the option of selecting Arkel hardware as an upgrade to the standard Swift hooks and bungee cord. The upcharge is $55, with an additional 425g added to a pair of panniers. Arkel hardware doesn’t rely on compression to hold the panniers in place. And from our experience, it’s robust, resists any temptation to slide, and sticks like super glue over rough terrain. But, as you can see, this comes at a weight penalty, making them of less interest to bikepackers.

    • Without stabilising arms the panniers flap around a bit over rough terrain – though they’ve never come off
    • Not a hundred percent waterproof – you’ll need drybags too if expecting monsoon downpours

Both also feature an internal, CNC machined, 6061-T6 aluminum subframe that gives them structure. Check out Cass’ detailed review here.

    • Type: Mini Panniers
    • Attachment: webbing/straps
    • Volume (each): 12
    • Fabric: 400D TPU coated nylon waterproof fabric

    Alpkit has a number of panniers in their Toliari series: a 12, 20, and 30. The 12 is probably the best option for this Index. All the models are available in both a clip and clipless version. The clipless version has versatile webbing ladders that permit a multitude of attachment options, be it on a front or rear rack. The Toliari clipped version features adjustable clips and a large top handle, making them more convenient to mount and remove when you take a pit stop.

    Key features listed by Alpkit include a three-year Alpine Bond and waterproof fabric with a roll-top closure. Price-wise, they come in at a very affordable £34.99 each.

    Highlights

    The Bags by Bird (BXB) Side Bustle Pannier is a lightweight and compact roll-top pannier with an 11L capacity and tapered profile to make navigating obstacles easier. The bottom and back of the Side Bustle Pannier are reinforced with highly abrasion-resistant fabrics (Ultra800 when choosing Ultragrid colors or ballistic nylon or 1000D Cordura for other fabrics), there is a removable plastic sheet in the back panel for added structure, and there is an internal batten behind the hypalon strap area to keep its shape against the rack.

    Buckhorn Bags Panniers

    • Type: Small Panniers
    • Attachment: Voile Straps / Buckles
    • Volume (Each): 13L
    • Fabric: Waxed Duck Cloth

    The Buckhorn Bags Panniers are constructed from US-made #10 waxed duck cloth, lined with a custom natural white ripstop laminate fabric, and all attachment points are made from hard wearing Hypalon. The panniers ship with Voile Nano straps for attaching to the top of the rack and cam straps for the lower attachment points. There is a closed cell foam back panel to help give the panniers shape and pad the contents, and a simple roll-top closure with side-release buckles is used to access the main compartment. They provide between 9 and 13L of storage, which hits a sweet spot that is comparable to some of our other favourite micro panniers. Although the panniers will likely fit most racks, including the Tumbleweed T-Rack, Buckhorn suggests traditional racks with two legs will work best. They are offered in three colors: Olive Drab, Field Tan, and Black.

    Cedaero Love Handle Panniers

    Cedaero Love Handle Panniers

    • Type: Small Panniers
    • Attachment: Rack Hooks
    • Volume (each): 16L
    • Fabric: Codura / Waxed Canvas / X-Pac

    Handmade in Minnesota, the Love Handle Panniers are based around a tapered triangular shape (likely to help with heel clearance), a flap closure, and a unique attachment system that uses a classic metal hook with a pin to lock the panniers in place. Since the panniers are made to order, Cedaero offers loads of assorted add-ons. There are options to add reflective detailing, a daisy chain/shock cord area on the lid, and you have control over all of the fabrics used. In fact, you can select up to six unique colors/fabrics to fully customize your new panniers. Cedaero has a long list of colorful options in Cordura, X-Pac, and waxed canvas. The panniers are also designed around your specific rack model, so you can be sure they’ll fit.

    The Love Handle Panniers have a 200-denier internal liner, a foam stiffener, a lightweight Bubble-X backer board, and blinky light loops on the front and back. Each pannier measures out to 17 x 13.5 x 5.25″ (HxWxD) and has a 16-liter capacity. They aren’t waterproof, but Cedaero claims they are extremely weather resistant thanks to the materials and their construction techniques.

    • Not waterproof, but highly weather-resistant

    • Fabric: X-Pac, Dyneema, Cordura

    Handmade in Poland, the Dyed in the Wool Panniers are one of the larger options in this index, but still fit the bill at 13L when packed, with room to expand with the top closure rolled up. They use a quick-release rack hook attachment, a simple roll-top closure, and the exterior of the bag is finished with MOLLE webbing for attaching lights or other dangly bits. Each pack has a 1000D base for durability, a 4mm HDPE back, and a waterproof Oxford fabric liner. Although the panniers are made from waterproof materials, the construction is not 100% waterproof so some items should be stored in a dry bag when needed.

    Ortlieb Gravel-Pack Panniers

    Ortlieb Gravel-Pack Panniers

    • Type: Front or small rear panniers
    • Attachment: Small Panniers
    • Volume (each): 14.5L
    • Fabric: Welded/waterproof

    The Ortlieb Gravel-Pack panniers are a little different from other front panniers Ortlieb offers. They are made from the same lightweight, abrasion-resistant PSR21 material used on the Handlebar-Pack, Seat-Pack, and newer additions to the bikepacking line-up. This makes them about 280 grams lighter than the popular Sport Roller front panniers. In addition, each is equipped with two — as opposed to one — stabilizer hooks for securing to the rack on rough trails and rugged dirt roads. These features make them a little more appropriate for unpaved and bumpy surfaces, and shaving a little weight is always welcome in the bikepacking sphere. A few years back, Gin ended up using a pair of Ortlieb’s Sport Roller front panniers on a rear rack during our trip through Africa. All in all, they held up well. But after some bushwhacking and a lot of rough roads, they did get a little beat up, so the abrasion-resistant material is a welcome addition.

    • Ortlieb Gravel Packs, Panniers
    • Ortlieb Gravel Packs, Panniers
    • Ortlieb Gravel Packs, Panniers

    All features and build quality considered, the Ortlieb Gravel-Pack seems like a pretty good option for scenarios where extra space is needed, or when a seat pack isn’t in the cards. And if you’re into the idea of front-loading, which is what Ortlieb designed them for, I presume these could work well in that application too. The pannier pair has 25 liters of volume and features the somewhat new and beefier QL2.1 mounting hook system. These are the nicest pannier mounts I’ve seen, plus you can remove each pannier with one hand via the quick-release handle strap. Double stabilizer hooks are nothing new as folks have been adding an extra on their front panniers for a while, but it’s nice that Ortlieb included it, and the additional support does help on rough tracks. Each bag also has a stiff plastic backing to help it stay true. Like other bags in their lineup, the Gravel-Pack panniers are RF-welded and fully waterproof.

    Highlights

    • Fully waterproof thanks to RF-welded construction
    • Available individually or as a pair
    • Two color options

    Drawbacks

    The RAL EX Loader is designed to be versatile enough for hard rides as well as everyday life.

    Roadrunner Anywhere Bikepacking Panniers

    • Type: Small Panniers
    • Attachment: Voile Straps
    • Volume (each): 17.25L
    • Fabric: Cordura

    Inspired by their Jammer handlebar bag, the new Roadrunner Anywhere Bikepacking Panniers are based around a large roll-top closure, internal stiffeners and Voile strap attachment, and a durable 1000-denier Cordura outer fabric. Just like the Jammer, the Anywhere Bikepacking Panniers use their C.W.S. (Closure Webbing System) for a four-point compression to create a tight setup that eliminates any wobble or sway. The C.W.S. is achieved by looping the compression straps from the front of the pannier to the rack and down to the bottom of the pannier again.

    There are two attachment points along the upper stiffener where two Voile Nano Straps secure the pannier to your rack and a vertical length of daisy chain along the back of the pannier provides an attachment point for a third strap. The exterior of the bag is made from a hard-wearing 1000-denier Cordura, the interior is lined with 420-denier ripstop nylon, and the bag is finished with Roadrunner’s proprietary seam taping, giving it a high level of waterproofness. Aside from the main compartment, there is a smaller velcro pocket on the front for quick-access items.

    Made to order in Minnesota, the Sturdy Minne Panniers are based around a slim triangular shape that’s perfect for short trips or everyday essentials. They attach to a rack using two velcro straps at the top and an additional at the bottom, and a webbing compression strap. The main compartment is accessed via a waterproof zipper and the backs and sides of the pannier are made of black 1680 denier ballistic canvas. There is closed cell foam throughout for padding, and a plastic stiffener inside of the back panel. Sturdy offers a wide range of colour/fabric options for the front panel of the bag. For something a bit bigger, the Sturdy Standard Pannier offers more capacity and Arkel Cam Lock hardware for easy on/off.

    The WOHO XTOURING Bikepacking UL Pannier Dry is a welded waterproof roll-top pannier made “with the ultralight bikepacking ethos in mind.” The WOHO XTOURING panniers each feature three large hook-and-loop nylon straps that provide a secure attachment for off-road use. WOHO claims that this makes a rattle-free mount between the rack and panniers.

    The Tawian-made XTOURING Panniers weigh in at just 12 ounces (350 grams) per bag, making them one of the lighter options among the mini panniers on the market today. They feature a high-frequency welded construction, so they’re fully waterproof when rolled closed. Fully open, they have a combined volume of 36 liters. Rolled three times, their volume is 20 liters for the set. They’re rated to hold 15 pounds (7 kilograms) per bag.

Panniers vs. Fork-Mounted Anything Bags

There are a number of fork-mounted anything bags and bolt-on bags that could almost be included in this Gear Index, but we’ve purposely kept them separate because of how they attach to your bike. In most scenarios, panniers require a rack to strap or hook onto. Eyelet mounted bags and cargo bags, on the other hand, are designed without racks in mind and usually bolt on directly to your frame or fork, or strap onto a cargo cage. We see the attachment method as the determining factor because there is some overlap when it comes to capacity. There are some big 4.5L+ fork-mounted cargo bags, and there are some small 4.5L+ panniers. You can dig into our Gear Index on Cargo Cages and “Anything Bags” here.

Parting Thoughts

Yes, we know bikepacking is all about ditching racks and streamlining your setup. And that certainly remains the goal, as your bike will undoubtedly handle better on singletrack. But although we all aspire to carry less – because a lighter bike opens up more possibilities in terms of the terrain we can ride, and how much we enjoy ourselves – small, rattle-free panniers can make a very useful addition to a bikepacker’s suite of gear.

Shorter riders or those embarking on winter trip, family journeys, or long-distance bikepacking trips can discover the benefit of smaller-than-average mini panniers and a rack in increasing storage capacity. Ultimately, this hybrid approach will likely suit many, taking the away the complications of precision packing, without succumbing to the “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” approach to bike touring.

And, as with all of our Gear Indexes, if you have other small or mini panniers you think should be in this list and fit our criteria, leave us a comment below. Thanks!
